Maximus XI Hero: choosing a boot m.2 drive

Dear All,

I'm about to start my new build base on a Maximus XI Hero. As I will be installing to identical m.2 drives, how can I choose which one of the two I want to use as my windows boot drive? (I'd like to choose the one furthest from the CPU.

Kind Regards,

Karim

go to bios and select one as your boot drive

hmm yes thanks. My question is can one clearly see in the bios what drive corresponds to what position on the MOBO...

Should be in the manual. I don't have your board but typically the M.2 slots are enumerated just like SATA ports.*

Or just start with your boot drive installed and don't add the 2nd drive until later. That way you will be sure to install to the drive you want.

*Actually the port identifications should be printed on the PCB next to the slot so you really don't even need the manual.
